Always seemed to be in a hurry just did not want to hear what I needed to say.
Nashville, TN |
After years of suffering I'm grateful for diagnosis. Problems changing Meds. I did not like side effects & she would not change. She is great conferring w my other doctors. Office staff - Michelle, have had problems on every phone call & at every visit. 3 month wait for existing patients! Dr did spend much time explaining my conditions.
in Nashville, TN |
Dr. Somai spent at least an hour with me on my initial consult, which is practically unheard of nowadays. She asked tons of questions and dug into my family and personal medical history very thoroughly. She has given me injections into my hip joints that were virtually painless, even though the needle was frighteningly long! I have found her to be an excellent and caring doctor.
in Brentwood, TN |
Dr Somai did a cursory exam and told me I had R A. She prescribed meds which caused a severe reaction. I have had pain but nothing like the eye pain I had from the reaction to the medications she prescribed. When called by the eye surgeon she was too busy to talk with him and could not even be bothered to return the call. Arrogant, cocky and above all, wrong! When I went to a new doctor at Vanderbilt THERE WAS NO RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS ! I have still not recovered from her errors.
in Goodlettsville, TN |
find her to be uncaring, arrogant and she does not listen to her patients. she looks at me like im dirty rarely touches me to examine me and as of yet has not given me anything to treat my rheumatoid arthritis that i have tested twice positive for. says im not in enough pain to gwt meds yet i wake up in pain and suffer pain all day to the point of tears do not go if primary refers you she charges way too much esp if you are on limited income.
